The exuberant host of Travel Channel’s Man v. Food, Adam Richman, has crisscrossed the continent in search of the best eating experiences this country has to offer. Believing that regional cuisine reveals far more than just our taste for chicken-fried steak or 3-way chili, Richman explores the ethnic, economic, and cultural factors that shape the way we eat—and how food, in turn, reflects who we are as a nation.
Using his signature wit and casual charm, Richman takes you on a tour around the country, explaining such curiosities as why bagels are shaped like circles, why fried chicken is so popular in the South, and how some of the most iconic American food— hot dogs, fries, and soda—are not really American at all. Writing with passion, curiosity, and a desire to share his knowledge, he includes recipes, secret addresses for fun and tasty finds, and tips on how to eat like a local from coast to coast.
